Released in May of 2021, Scaled and Icy is the rock duo’s most recent album. On MTV Unplugged, they’ll undoubtedly play a mix of their classic chart-toppers and newest hits. This could lead to a very exciting menagerie for the show. Twenty One Pilots has always been known for their wide range in music genres. They’ve played music that was alternative rock, alternative hip hop, indie pop, electro pop, and rap rock, to name a few.

According to Taylor Mims at Billboard, MTV Unplugged in Partnership With Rockstar Energy Drink Present: Twenty One Pilots will premiere June 9th at 9 p.m. EST. The special will air exclusively on MTV.
